How did Americans react to Kristallnacht? What were there thoughts on the annexation of Austria? How much did they know about Auschwitz?
These are just some of the questions that History Unfolded, a crowdsourcing project by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, seeks to answer.
In the past, historians have done extensive research on how major newspapers like the New York Times covered Nazi persecution and the plight of the Jews in Europe.
But no one has looked, until now, at the Bangor Daily News, the Youngstown Ohio Vindicator or the Santa Cruz Sentinel.
